"Sa Pagtaas ng Tubig"
 
Kung masidhi
ang pangangailangan
ng tubig
manalangin ka ng ulan
Kung sa tuwina'y
malamig sa paggising
gumawa ka ng apoy
Kung gusto mo ng puno
tungo sa langit
magtanim ka ng buto
at hayaang tumubo
 
Kung kailangan mong maniwala
Sa galaw ng pag taas ng tubig
Sa kinang ng liwanag ng buwan
Sa saliw ng tunog ng ulan
Sa tamis ng halimuyak ng hamog
 
Sa pag lalakad kong mag-isa
habang iniisip ang tungkol
sa akin at sa iyo
Napagtanto kong 
Ang pag-ibig ay kailanman 
di magiging madali
 
Anumang subok ang gawin
upang mapagtakpan
 ang pighati at pawiin 
ang daloy ng luha 
sa mga mata
 
Kung kailangan mo ang sinuman
Sana malapit lang sa iyong likuran
Upang madaling maibalot
ang mga braso (ko)
sa iyong mundo

Moonflower (bulaklak ng buwan)
An adapatation from
the song "Turn of the Tida"

A diamond poem:

 

 

 

Whimsy

Cunning, quick-witted

Driving,  thrusting, liberating

Souls connection, awakening the self

effectuating, heeding, heading

staunch, steadfast

Realism

"Lipas Oras"

 

Anong oras na?

Tila umaga na.

Nakikita ko ang langit

Napakaganda at kulay bughaw

Bukas ang TV pero tila ikaw

Ang nakikita ko

 

Bumangon ako’t naghanda ng kape

Sinubukan kong magbasa ng konti

Pero manipis lang ang kwento

Nagpasalamat sa Amang nasa itaas

At wala ka para makita ako

Sa sitwasyon ko

 

Nagpapalipas ng oras

Habang pinagmamasdan

Ang paglubog ng araw

Nanliliit. Nakatingin sa dingding

Umaasang iniisip mo rin

At nangungulilila din

 

Hanggang sa maidlip sa himig

ng kantang “Luha ng Payaso”

Isang panalangin na naglahong

Parang bulag,  sinubukang

Tumawag,  Pero di alam

ang sasabihin

 

Nag iwan ng isang halik

Sa answering machine

Nagsusumamo ng tulong

Kung meron isang nilalang

Upang ako’y gisingin

Mula sa panaginip na ito

 

Laging pinaalalahanan

ng mga kaibigan

“Tuloy lang ang buhay

at siguradong ang lahat ay

matatapos din”

 

Itong mapag larong pag-ibig

inisip mong mananaig

Kaipala’y magiging

talunan din

 

6:00 pm

 

An adaptation from the song

"Spending My Time"

The trilogy compiled and completed (No Title sorry)

 

0105
 
-ACT I
 
It was everything he thought,
the stars had fallen and he had caught.
Those sweet smiles he finally sees,
and it was all he wanted it  to be.
 
The moment he held her hand without resistance,
It gave him the best and everlasting chance,
but then she gave him that unrelenting glance,
but it didn't matter to him, he felt like he was in France.
 
That pizza was so disgusting for him and her,
but then it gave them reason to smile together.
He felt that both of them that time were so free,
and he hoped and prayed that moment would last forever.
 
The bus ride is long and quiet.
His confidence is puzzled, yet he don't feel innocent.
What he felt from her was real.
Is it really just mercy that she feels?
 
-ACT II
 
His world stopped at that ocean metro,
and that dancing jellies goes along perfectly with the maestro.
He looked at her and he saw hope.
It was the first time he saw her this happy, he could bite a rope.
 
He looked again at her face.
And he saw a never ending grace.
His hopes & confidence grew stronger,
he feels that this one year of waiting will be over.
 
The words "just do what you wanna do" from her text soon followed.
And made it clear that all his waiting will turn to gold.
His heart jumps over and over and over a lot.
He was too happy, he can create anyone a story with a great plot.
 
He told her he is nearing to a year of waiting,
then she asked him "why? are you now tired of pursuing?"
It raises his smile so high to the clouds,
Even the angels in heaven will be so proud.
 
It was a challenge worth of all the sacrifices,
and its coming, he felt it, with a lot of praises.
And then the change of calendar came,
He never ever had an idea it would all be put to shame.
 
-FINAL ACT
 
Then the day came, when they agreed to talk,
his feeling sick but it doesn't matter, today he is a Hulk.
He picked her up and everything felt normal,
he had no idea that the next thing would be brutal.
 
he agreed that she just want this conversation to be short,
& then he began to realize, "will this slit my throat?"
the dinner was also short, then she started to reveal all,
his mighty red tower started to fall.
 
"from the 1st day until this day, my feelings never changed", she said.
That he cannot be the one, his efforts were just wasted.
The moments they are together were just all part of a trial,
and she still don't feel him, and it was never a denial.
 
His world collapses, he felt so insensitive.
It was all his fault, he listened to his false hopes.
This falling star doesn't light anymore,
"Can you add pain in me some more?".
 
-FINALE
 
"Its over, you ended me...
This false hope, i am so blind to see...
It was always you i would like to fall....
but you were never there - to catch me at all....

Only time will tell

What lies ahead of her

Though one thing for sure

Is a self-determined nature

Skin overlapping skin

Conforming the contours on your body 

The tight grip that compresses your muscles

Such an intimate feeling

Oh lupang sinilangan

angkin mong likas na yaman

taglay mong likas na kagandagan

 

inspirasyon naming lahat

sadyang tinitingala ang iyong

kariktan, malaparaiso mong


kagubatan, malaporselanang

dalampasigan, karagatang

kulay asul, mga tanawing


sadyang kamangha-mangha't

kabigha-bighani, inaasam-asam

naming lahat na mabigyan


ng kaganapan ang aming

mga pangarap na masulayapan

man lang ang lahat ng iyon


bago pa man kami pumanaw...

One brief moment...
 

Lust

shapeshifts

and dust settles

revealing that which is unbidden

something else entirely.

 

Before I can decide

between flesh and soul

beastly function or godly wisdom

Bacchus whispers

and truth flows more fluid than tears

Radiance blinds, yet I can see more.

 

Ah, when prose presents itself

like breath sputtering yet essential

I muster the four winds

and sing what cherubims dare not utter

Free as you would have me suffer.

 

Life is a jester

the cruelest parody played at my weakest.

When I am reborn, I pray, ye gods

that all my roads will grant me mercy

and lead me straight to you.

DOUBTS

 

Destiny, you said, is predetermined

 

hence the name, hence the romance

the melodrama often associated

with pre-written tales of love

premonitions of death and

just about the littlest things

in a human life...

 

I, in turn, said destiny bends to our will

that everything is but an offspring of chance and of circumstance

consequences of action and our tainted choices

and not even the gods may decide nor declare

and no amount of romance can convince me otherwise...

 

       But then destiny took you away

       just about as swiftly

       as our thoughts are conceived, are born

       and collide...

 

              And I am left to question

              my former resolve...

              Is destiny indeed ours to command

              or is it all written

              before we can even decide?

 

                     Have the fates chosen then

                     to leave me desolate

                     so as to remind humanity

                     that we are, in fact, at their mercy?

 

                                                                                    03-03-2006

PANGARAP NA TANGAN

 

Bukang liwayway nagsimulang lumuha ang mga bituin
Batid nilang malapit nang isuko ng buwan
Ang liwanag niyang hiniram lamang…

Sa araw

Sa araw-araw nang ginawang magbukas ang mga ulap
Upang magpatukso sa dagat na malawak at asul
Na tanging mga anghel lamang ang nakakaabot

Pa'no naman kaming hindi man lang makatingin sa langit?

Ni hindi man lamang naming kayang bulungan ang mga tala
At yayaing maglaro sa pisngi ng lupa

Malambot ang yakap ng hangin
Lalo na't mainit ang titig ng araw
Paminsan nga lamang ay lubhang nakapapaso
Sa aming nasanay nang magtago sa tahanan at mga puno

Humalik na ang huling patak ng ulan
Sa balat ng lupang nakapikit
Nangangarap

Bakit kaya ang tuktok ng pinakamataas na bundok
Ay tanging nyebe ang nakabalot? Kaninong mukha kaya ang nakaguhit sa buwan sa tuwing karimlan?

Linggo ngayong araw na ito

Bisperas ng bagong taon ng Tsina

Di ko lang maubos maisip kung

Bakit ipinag diriwang pa ito

Sa bayan natin

 

Di naman lingid lalo na

Sa halos ng buong mundo

Kung paano lapastanganin

ang bansa natin, pero sa

kabila nyan, patuloy pa rin

 

Ang pagtangkilik natin

Sa mga produkto nila

Bakit di na lang kasi

Balewalain muna ang lahat

ng  nauugnay sa kanila

 

Dito sa atin hangga’t

Di  natatapos ang gusot

Sa Isla ng Spratlys

Sadya nga bang  ganun

Na tayo kahina at kalambot?

RANDOM THOUGHTS OF SUMMER
(revised)
 
She hated her given name
So she took her birth month and called it her own
 
And I reckon even the stars, she can 
take down if she wishes
 
For she is forever defiant
She frowns at the world and its superficial whims
and at the slightest displeasure, she 
casts unfriendly eyes on the whole of humanity
 
Yet she is never perfect --- no, not her
She falls weak at times to her own human flaws
and her self-accusing thoughts 
But how I worship her
the Aphrodite of my lost dreams 
 
And a goddess she is
Her splendor lies not on the quick stare
But on careful scrutiny
Beyond those squinting eyes
Behind the face angelic, she shines
And how she shines!
How she moves me with the littlest gesture!
 
She does as she pleases, she takes what she can
For she is slave to no man
She harbors no illusions, no self-diluting fantasies
For life is as life should ever be 
Real
 
She is a mystery
a vast sea of secrets
She'll keep you guessing to the very end
For what she is, she keeps
In eternity locked
 
A riddle even
She would strike in unpredicted temper
Fire her mental guns with indiscriminate passion
Yet she charms in her own little way
Draws you 
With sweetness even she is not aware of
 
She is a child
At times she would weep
In near defeat collapse
For she knows not her strength
 
Twenty one years or so, she
walked the earth without a grasp of what she can do
This child Athena blessed
will forever be uncertain
 
She is young, and forever doubtful
Of herself
She searches unceasingly
To fill the void of self-belief
When all she needs is to look inward
and see her true worth
 
She is, and will always be to me, a lot of things
But most of all
 
She reminds me of summer
of long-gone days of youth 
of dry afternoons spent in fetal daydreams
of love whispered and forever lost in the winds
 
 
                                                                                         circa 2005

I opened my eyes and i see flashbacks,
memories of you seems to always come back.
That beautiful voice, the humming of choice,
singing like an angel, that became a rejoice.
 
It was the fight of the century, the blind crusade,
doing everything you can, you almost reach the grave,
a week or two of sadness and stupidity,
and you thought in that move it will create a lot pf pity..
 
Acting so tough, so focus and with a brave heart,
but deep inside, you are just beginning to fall apart.
Its been over a year of too much pretending,
and what did you gain from of all that? nothing...
 
Wake up.. listen..face it..be a man...
Tell them... tell her.. tell yourself..your human...
you know its acceptance of what you really feel,
is what will make you out of this suffering reel.
 
Enough of this pretension's, you don't even have any intention's.
you don't need to act unaffected, its just making you continually dead.
you know you still love her..too much that you just cant accept it,
and the saddest part is that you just cant do anything about it..
 
Stop listening to the songs that makes her alive,
Stop looking at those pictures that you wish would never exist,
Stop hating everyone that judged you from that episode.
Just be yourself, and get back to your normal mode..
 
wake up....

endure this  insouciance

till everything gets appeased

for at this moment in time

been delighting over a tiny

 fortress and in one’s

gripping, while at it,

aspire for one’s

quiescent

and

eudaemonia

happy heart's day!
